New 2022 MG 5 EV electric estate car to make UK debut at Goodwood

UK pricing and delivery dates for facelifted version of popular electric estate to be confirmed soon

MG 5 SW EV 2022

The facelifted version of the MG 5 SW EV electric estate car will make its UK public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed event, starting on 23 June. The updated car – which DrivingElectric has already had a chance to drive in Germany – features refreshed styling and improved on-board technology.

There are no range or charging speed upgrades, however – beyond the improvements that were introduced for the existing car in late 2021. This saw the addition of a Long Range version to the line-up, with a 61.1kWh battery for a 249-mile range on a charge.

Exterior design changes for the 2022 model encompass new front and rear bumpers, redesigned LED headlights and tail-lights, plus new wheel designs.

Like the latest MG ZS electric SUV, the 5 SW will also come with Vehicle-To-Load (V2L) capability, which lets you power or charge devices like e-bikes, portable heaters or camping equipment using the car's battery.

There are interior design and technology upgrades, too, including a 10.25-inch infotainment screen with upgraded software and support for 'iSMART' connected car functionality through MG’s smartphone app.

An exact on-sale date and full pricing and trim-level details for the new 5 SW have yet to be issued by MG's UK arm, however this information is expected to follow soon after the car's Goodwood debut.
